I'm one of those women that looks for my male counterpart and I'm a strong believer in that two liked-minded individuals last longer than total opposites.

I look for someone I'm compatible with. I'm a gym junkie so I look for others who go to the gym like I do. I don't judge girls on their past though.
Many people in their early 20's can sleep around and be a totally different person when they're 25ish. So saying "Well you did something 5 years ago that has no impact on us so I don't like you anymore" is just plain stupid. I only look for things like if they have an STD or something. From my experiences I have found that girls I have met who have slept around are more mature and comfortable with themselves than the reserved girls. This makes a huge difference in relationships. There's only a select few girls that I have met who slept around and fit the "gross" stereotype of a slut that's negative. Plus that specific person is notorious for it.
The girls who I have met who have had a limited number of partners would be very judgmental of other girls who have slept around. They'd also judge any guy that advanced on them in any way. The main question in my mind would be "Why would they only approach her for sex? Does she not have any other qualities?" But then if you talk to them further you can notice that the guys are just trying to get closer in a typical dating fashion and she's enjoying the attention, but "complaining about it."
The only stuff to be concerned about with a person's past is things like a drug history, and maybe cheating since cheaters have a tendency to repeat their habits.
